The best thing to do would be to have the drive split into two partitions, but that will not work properly now. So get a friend to bring over a harddrive you can borrow for the duration of the reinstall and copy all your music files over to his harddrive.

Then go through the reinstall process, remembering to delete the old partition(s) in the process. Then split up your drive into two partitions. The OS only needs about 10-15GB of space for itself and installed programs, the other partition should be used for keeping data on.
